Richard Sharpe And. The Bussaco Campaign, 1810. He just marched on, climbing the bare Portuguese slope under the searing sun. It was September 1810, almost autumn, yet the heat of late summer hammered the landscape like a furnace. At the top of the hill, another mile or so ahead of Sharpe, stood a barn-like stone building next to a gaunt telegraph station. The station was a black timber scaffolding supporting a high mast from which signaling arms hung motionless in the afternoon's heat.

Captain Richard Sharpe, with his company of redcoats and riflemen, meets the invaders on the gaunt ridge of Bussaco where, despite a stunning victory, the French are not stopped. Sharpe’s Escape slots between Sharpe’s Gold and Sharpe’s Battle. Sharpe’s Havoc (2003). Patrick Harper is back, as is Captain Hogan. The book slots between Sharpe’s Rifles and Sharpe’s Eagle.

Comments to eBook Sharpe's Escape (Richard Sharpe's Adventure Series #10)

I thought this was one of the best in the series. I read the original series starting with Sharpe's Rifles through Waterloo so I am a big fan these books. Recently started over in chronological order. Escape has been one of the most action packed of the new books as there are two big battles and characters faced with very tough problems but solve them in ways that did not turn off this reader.

In book 20 of the Sharpe series, Cornwell is still doing what he does best...keeping Sharpe alive, keen, and fresh...and writing the best breathtaking battlescenes ever!
The Battle of Bussaco is so gritty you can smell the gunpowder, feel your mouth go dry with the salt as the Riflemen reload, and feel the smoke smothering and embracing your lungs.
Cornwell's descriptions are vivid and detailed and as authentic as it gets in historical fiction.
Naturally, Sharpe has his own private nemisis - in vol. 20 he's Ferragus, all-around 'bad-boy' selling contraband to the French and annoying Richard with fists, deeds and words.
The lovely Patrick Harper is here also (charming & one of my favorite of Cornwell's characters) and more than a sidekick. Harper grows with each novel as does Hogan (another favorite) who's more than just an engineer.
Brilliant adventure tale!

I read this series, start to finish. Chronological order. Every book is excellent . the story in full is excellent.
All winter, rainy days, fireplace, coffee, cookies. Great time spent with wonderful characters, good and bad.
The stories built into history lessons were just masterful.
Sorry, Do to so many read, I am copying one review for all. Singularly or Collectively, you can not go wrong with Bernard Cornwell.

I read the whole series of Sharpe's books a few years ago, and decided to read them again they are very interesting and depict a lot of the major battles between the French and British armies.

Liked the most - it is one of my favorite series.
Liked the least - not long enough. I’d like it to go on longer.

I've been working my through the audiobooks for the Sharpe series (written by Bernard Cornwell), and when I got to Sharpe's Escape, the reader changed from Frederick Davidson (who died in 2005) to Patrick Tull. Mr. Tull is wonderful and he hits the comic elements beautifully. I hope he reads the unabridged audiobook for Sharpe's Fury, due out September 2006. M. Tull also reads the Patrick O'Brian Aubrey Maturin series (Master and Commander, etc.), so I've also begun working my way through that series.
It was a quick read, possibly because it's a very good book. I can say this - each book I've read of Bernard Cornwell have been no less than amazing; I've been reading this very same author for Two Years now! The Saxon Tales, Grail series, Agincourt, etc. I am now on another Sharpe book and plan to read them all in the series. Note: read them in proper order...Chronologically
